  1. 1. Atmosphere-ocean Interactions in Swell Dominated Wave Fields

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Alvaro Semedo; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Waves; Wind sea; Swell; Swell propagation; MABL; Air-sea interaction; Momentum flux; Wave climate; Coupling; Wave age; Empirical Orthogonal functions; Wave model; Climate model; WAM; RCA; wave heights; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Meteorology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Meteorologi; Meteorologi; Meteorology;

    Abstract : Ocean wind waves represent the atmosphere-ocean boundary, playing a central role in the air-sea exchanging processes. Heat, mass and momentum are transferred across this boundary, with waves mediating the exchange of principally the momentum between the winds and the ocean surface. During the generation process waves are called wind sea. READ MORE

  2. 2. Geotechnical Aspects of Buildings on Expansive Soils in Kibaha, Tanzania Preliminary Study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Charles Lucian; KTH.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; expansive soils; soil properties; potential swell; Soil-Structure Interaction SSI ; and superstructure and substructure.; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Building engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : The focus of this study is on potential problems resulting from construction on expansive soils in Kibaha region, Tanzania. For the fact that most of the affected structures are founded on expansive soils, a clear understanding of the soil behaviour and their interaction with structures, specifically as they relate to shallow foundations, has been of more interest to the study in order to evaluate properly the source of the problem.

  3. 3. Geotechnical Aspects of Buildings on Expansive Soils in Kibaha, Tanzania

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Charles Lucian; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Expansive soils; soil properties; potential swell; smectite montmorillonite ; multivariate statistics; geo-statistics; spatial variability; lightweight structures; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Abstract :  The focus of this study is on potential damages to buildings resulting from expansive soils in Tanzania, particularly clay soils in Kibaha. For the fact that most of the affected structures are founded on expansive soils, a clear understanding of the behaviour of soils and their interaction with structures has been of interest to the study in order to evaluate properly the source of the problem.

  4. 4. Influence of Pulp and Wood Properties on the Unreacted Residuals in Carboxymethyl Cellulose

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstad University Studies

    Author : Kristina Jardeby; [2004]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In this work, the influence of pulp and wood properties on the amount and properties of unreacted residuals in carboxymethyl cellulose was evaluated. The results show that the presence of undissolved residuals in the CMC was not due to any chemical difference between these residuals and the reacted fibres. READ MORE

  5. 5. Water-swelling tablets based on hydrophobically modified poly(acrylic acid) - Effects of amphiphiles on swelling and drug release

    University dissertation from Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Patrik Knöös; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Drug deliver; Controlled release; Hydrophobically modified polymers; Surfactant-polymer interactions; Poorly soluble drug;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Vi kommer dagligen i kontakt med läkemedel i olika former, antingen som den kräm som vi smörjer in vårt onda knä eller Treon somliga tar på söndagsmorgon. Många av dessa produkter kan se enkla ut men är ofta resultatet av mycket forskning och för att förstå hur arbetet som utgör den här avhandlingen är kopplat till en Treo, så tänkte jag att vi ska börja med att förklara vad ett läkemedel egentligen är.
